Institutional Strength

The Commission has the mandate to educate the public (citizens and institutions) on the dangers of corruption and to mobilise support to prevent and combat all forms of corruption in Zimbabwe. This is done through employing various ways of raising anti-corruption awareness including physical meetings/workshops, mass media, social media and infotainment.

Internationally, most States have established anti-corruption agencies as special tools for combating corruption in various forms, as corruption is a transnational organised crime. This requires synergies, alliances and collaborations among states and various players. States have different legislation and cultural disposition that influence their understanding and management of corruption. In order to maintain sound diplomatic relationships, protocol and mutual legal assistance channels, a dedicated unit such as the ZACC’s External Relations and International Conventions or the External Cooperation and International Affairs as it is called in many countries has become unavoidable.
